Medal: 

HoRACii C. Odell. Patrolman, Assigned as Chauffeiu' 
for Deputy Superintendent. 

The case of Patrolman Horace C. Odell, in the un- 
animous opinion of the Board of Award, merits the 
highest consideration, and we therefore award him 
Honorable Mention with recommendation to the 
Trustees of the Lambert Tree Medal Fund for the 
award of the Lambert Tree Medal. 

On November 19. 1920. at about 10:15 P. M.. Patrol- 
man Odell. assigned as private chauffeur to the De- 
puty Superintendent, was seated in the front seal 
of his automobile while it was standing at the curb 
in front of the home of the Deputy Superintendent 
at 3460 West Adams street, when he wa.s approached 
by two armed robbers, one on each side of the auto- 
mobile, who with drawn revolvers ordered him to 
start the motor. Odell dropped the key to his lock 
on the floor of the car and informed the men that 
the car was locked and he had no key. One of the 
men called Odell a liar, wbereupon Odell offered to 
step out of the car and allow himself to he searched 
for the key. While leaving the car, under cover of 
the robbers' guns, Odell pretended to be having some 
difficulty in slipping out from under the wheel and 
utilized this opportunity to draw his gun from his 
holster. He then jumped from the car and fired at 
the man on the left side of the automobile. This 
ha.ndit ran around to the rear of the car. followed by 
Odell, who continued a close fire. As Odell reached 
the rear of the car the second bandit opened fire on 
him. which fire Odell returned, resulting in the death 
of this second bandit who was later identified as 
•John Bumbaugh of 1248 South Crawford avenue. Af- 
ter shootina: Bumbaugh, Odell followed the first 
bandit, continuing to fire at him until he disappeared 
in the alley. He was apprehended the next day in a 
wounded condition and was found to have received a 
bullet wound in the lower nart of the abdomen and 
also a bullet wound in the hand. He was identified 
as Carl Stepina. alias William Ryan. He was a man 
with a previous police record and has since been con- 
victed on a robbery charge and sentenced to the pen- 
itentiary for a term of 10 years to life.

On Ma.reli 8, 1920. at about r):.30 A. M., an explosion 
occurred in the bottom of a quarry of the Chicago 
TTnion Tiinie Works at tOfb and Lincoln streets, when 
a magazine containing about five hundred pounds of 
dynamite exploded. Three men who were in the pit 
at tbe time were injured. Officer Bambula was pa- 
trol ing bis post at 21st and Robey streets. \A'ben be 
was almost thrown from his feet by tbe force of the 
explosion, which shook buildings and shattered win- 
dows for blocks aroimd. Bambula rushed to the 
quarry where be met the quarry foreman, of whom 
be inquired whether there was anybody in the pit. 
He w'as informed that there were three men working 
there and was warned that there were two other 
magazines yet remaining in the pit containing about 
500 pounds of dynamite each, and that the fire which 
was then burning in the quarry might spread to these 
magazines. Disregarding this warning Bambula de- 
scended a ladder to the bottom of the pit which was 
?i50 feet deep where be srooed around until he found 
the three men. all of whom had been injured. Tn the 
meantime the men at tbe time had placed in op- 
eration tbe steam hoist to which a bucket bad 
been attached and had let it down to the bottom of 
the pit. Bambula placed one of the men in the 
bucket and stood un in the bucket holding one of 
the other men while the bucket was lifted to the 
surface. He then insisted unnn being lowered to the 
nit tbe second time and on this trip he returned with 
tbe third iniured ma.n. Tn performing this rescue 
work Bambula's imifnrm w-as practically ruined, ne- 
cessitating the purchase by him of a new uniform.

rr'volvor ^rom him and orderf>d him to drive to th"

was standing, on the runnin? board, tbe man drove 
at a ranid sneed and apparently attempted to swerve 
tbe car so as to throw Ho^an off the running board. 
Hogan then ordered tbe man to drive slower. The 
man then stopped tbe car. claiming that there wa> 
somelbina wronsr with it. He then suddenlv srasned 
a hammer and struck Hosan several times over the 
head, knocking some of his teeth out and otherwis'^ 
injuring him. Hogan grabbed tbe man and held him 
until a citizen ran up and shot tbe man in the back. 
Tbe man was then overpowered and arrested. Tt

who proved to be one Harry H. Ward, had held up the 
store at 326 North Cicero avenue in front of which

shtrc he h;id shot two men who had interfei'ed with 
his operations. One of flu'se men, Thomas Graiiey.

after a chase of two blocks he overtook them. Find- 
ing that the officer ba.d them covered with his revol- 
ver, the men surrendered. One of the men still had 
his revolver in his hand when captured. Dineen

Honorable William Hale Thompson, Mayor, Honor-

able Henry Stuckart, City Treasurer, Ex-Officio 
Trustees of the Carter H. Harrison Medal Fund: 

Gentlemen — The Board of Award, consisting of 
the Fire Marshal, the First Assistant Fire Marshal 
and the members of the Civil Service Commission, 
acting under Section 1 of Rule 37 of the Rules and 
Regulations of the Fire Department, hereby submits 
the following report of the cases considered for 
awards of merit for distinguished acts of bravery 
performed during the year 1920 by members of the 
Fire Department in the saving of life and property, 
together with a summary of the details and circum- 
stances of the acts of bravery performed and the 
names of such corroborating witnesses as were avail- 
able, in pursuance with Section 1933 of the Revised 
Municipal Code of 1911. 

1. Allen V. Prunty, Fireman, Hook and Ladder 
Company No. 24. 

The case of Fireman Allen V. Prunty, in the unani- 
mous opinion of the Board of Award, merits the 
highest consideration, and we therefore award him 
■honorable mention with recommendation to the Trus- 
tees of the Carter H. Harrison Medal Fund for the 
aicard of the Carter H. Harrison Medal. 

■ Fireman Prunty on December 8, 1920, at 4 :00 P. M.. 
responded with his company to a still alarm of fire in 
a two-story building at 10001 Beverly avenue. The 
fire had started in the basement of the building and 
had spread to the upper floors. When Prunty en- 
tered the building it was heavily charged with smoke. 
He heard a terrified voice which appeared to come 
from the top floor and afterwards^ proved to be the 



voice of a .5-year-old girl, who had heen hd't alone 
in till! building and who after the fire started had 
lied in fright to a bedroom on the top floor and hid 
under a bed. In atleiriptiiig to lind the, child Prunty 
encoiintei'ed very heavy smoke and found it i)rac- 
lically impossible to ventilate because* of the fact 
that the building was ((cpiippfsd vvith storm windows. 
After being driven hack by thc! smoke he secur(!d a 
secured a smoke helmet and used it until the air 
gave out. He then r(!mov(!d tlu^ helmet and con- 
tinued ihis search until he found the child beneath 
the bed. He removed her and carried her down a lad- 
der, which had by that time been erected by other 
members of the company. She was unconscious from 
the effects of smioke, but was resuscitated after ten 
minutes application of a borrowed lung motor, which, 
fortunately, was at that time being carried on the 
fire truck.

about 7:2.5 P. M., rescued one w^oman and two men 
from the second floor of the packing plant o4' the 
Fuhrman & Forster Company at 1843 Blue Island 
avenue. An ammonia pipe and bursted in this plant 
and the fire company was called to rescue employes 
on the second floor, whose escape was cut off by the 
escaping ammonia fumes. When the company ar- 
rived it was found that entrance by stairway was 
impossible because of the fumes and also that the 
fumes escaping from the building were so dense as 
to seriously interfere with the raising of ladders. 
When a ladder was finally raised to a second story 
window. Lieutenant Schroeder ascended in the face 
of great danger of suffocation, entered the heavily 
charged building and rescued a woman, then returned 
twice and rescued two men. That Lieutenant 
Schroeder's persistence in this work of rescue in- 
volved great danger to himself was evidenced by the 
fact that the roof of his mouth was seriously burned 
by the ammonia fumes.

8:15 A. M., rescued a little girl from the third floor 
of a burning building at 501 East 34th place. When 
the company arrived at the fire the building was so 
charged with smoke that the stairways could not be 
used. After several persons had been rescued from 
the fourth floor by means of ladders. Fireman Dold 
was informed that there was a child in a flat on the 
third floor. He ascended a fire escape and entered 
this flat, which was so heavily charged with smoke 
that he had to crawl on the floor and feel his way 
along the walls. After searching a bedroom and fail- 
ing to find the child there, he groped his way to the 
dining room, wihere he found the child lying uncon- 
scious on the floor. He carried her to the bedroom 
and there wrapped her in a blanket for protection.

followed him up the fire escape. The child was taken

ed surface of the pavement. 

' Upon this binder course shall be laid a wearing 
surface, which shall be composed of asphalt cement, 
clean graded sand and levigated limestone or other 
levigated stone equal in quality for paving purposes. 
The sand and asphalt cement shall be heated sepa- 
rately to a temperature of three hundred (300) de- 
grees Fahrenheit. The levigated limestone or other 
levigated stone equal in quality for paving purposes 
shall be mixed with the sand, and these ingredients 
then mixed with the asphalt cement at the above 
temperature in an apparatus which shall effect a 
thorough mixture. This mixture shall be composed 
of bitumen soluble in carbon disulphide — 11.5 per 
cent.; material passing a 200-mesh sieve — 12 per 
cent.; material passing an 80-mesh sieve and retained 
on a 200-mesh sieve — 25 per cent.; material passing 
a 40-mesh sieve and retained on an 80-mesh sieve — 
38 per cent.; material passing a 10-mesh sieve and

rial passing a 4-mesh sieve and retained on a 10- 
mesh sieve^l.5 per cent. 

The wearing surface when mixed as above shall 
be spread at a temperature of two hundred and eighty 
(280) degrees Fahrenheit. It shall be carefully spread 
to an even surface and to such depth that after hav- 
ing received its ultimate compression it will have a 
thickness of two (2) inches. 

The wearing surface after being spread, and while 
still in a hot and plastic condition, shall receive ini- 
tial compression by rolling with a self-propelled rol- 
ler of five (5) tons weight after which natural hy- 
draulic cement in the proportion of one (1) barrel 
to each one thousand (1000) square yards of surface 
shall be swept over it, and the whole then thorough- 
ly compressed by rolling with a self-propelled roller 
of ten (10) tons weight, the rolling being continued 
for five (5) hours for each thousand (lOOO'i square 
yards of surface. 

The asphalt cement above mentioned shall be pre- 
pared from the refined asphalt or asphalts and (lux, 
where flux must be used, provided that mixtures' of 
the refined asphalts, if used, shall be equal parts 0) 
each, and that the total proportion of refined asphalt 
or asphalts, comprising the asphalt cement shall not 
be less than fifty (50) per cent, by weight. When 
the weight of fiux in the asphalt cement prepart>(l 
from solid, native asphalts exceeds twenty-five (25)

per cent thereof, asphaltic or semi-asphaltic flux 
shall be used. The refined asphalt and Uux used in 
preparing the cement shall be melted together in a 
kettle at temperatures ranging from two hundred and 
fifty (250) degrees to not over three hundred and 
seventy-five (375) degrees Fahrenheit, and be 
tlioroughly agitated when hot by air, steam or nie- 
ehanieal appliances, until the resulting cement has 
lieconie thoroughly mixed into a homogeneous mass. 
The agitation must be continued during the entire 
period of preparing the mixtures. The cement shall 
always be of uniform consistency and if any portion 
should settle in the kettles between intervals of us- 
ing the same it must be thoroughly agitated before 
being drawn for use. The asphalt cement shall have 
a penetration at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahren- 
heit, of from thirty (30) to one hundred (100) de- 
grees, which shall be varied within these limits to 
adapt it to the particular asphalt used in the paving 
mixture and to the traffic and other conditions of 
the street. When forty (iOi grams of the asphalt 
cement of the consistency used in the paving mixture 
shall be heated for five (5) hours at a temperature 
of three hundred and twenty-five (325) degrees Fah- 
renheit, in a tin box two and one-quarter (2%) in- 
ches in diameter, there must not be volatilized more 
than five (5) per cent, of the bitumen nor shall the 
penetration at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahren- 
heit after such heating be less than one-half of the 
original penetration. A briquette of the asphalt 
cement of the consistency used in the paving mixture 
shall have a ductility of not less than ten (10) centi- 
meters. 

The refined asphalt used in making the asphalt 
cement shall be obtained from crude, native solid 
asphalt. The crude native solid asphalt if requiring 
refining shall be heated to a temperature of not over 
four hundred and fifty (450) degrees Fahrenheit un- 
til all water and light oils have been driven off. At 
least ninety-eight and one-half (98%' per cent, of 
the contained bitumen in the refined asphalt which 
is soluble in cold carbon disulphide shall be soluble 
in cold carbon tetra chloride. 

The refined asphalt may also be obtained by the 
careful distillation of California or Mexican petro- 
leum with steam agitation, at a temperature not ex- 
ceeding seven hundred (700) degrees Fahrenheit, un- 
til the resulting residue has a consistency not softer 
than seventy (70) degrees penetration and not harder 
than thirty (30) degrees penetration. The solid re- 
sidue so obtained shall be soluble in carbon tetra 
chloride to the extent of ninety-eight and one-half 
(98yo) per cent. If the solubility in carbon tetra 
chloride of the solid residue is less than ninety-nine 
(99) per cent., the bitumen shall yield upon ignition 
not more than fifteen (15) per cent, of fixed carbon; 
if the solubility is ninety-nine (99) per cent, or more, 
the bitumen shall yield upon ignition not more than 
eighteen (18) per cent, of fixed carbon. When forty 
(40) grams of the material are heated for five (5) 
hours at a temperature of three hundred and twenty- 
five (325) degrees Fahrenheit in a tin box two and 
one-quarter (2%) inches in diameter, it shall lose 
not over five 05) per cent, by weight nor shall the 
penetration after such heating be less than one-half 
of the original penetration. The refined asphalt shall 
have a ductility at fifty (50) penetration, of thirty 
(30) centimeters. 

The fiux may be a paraffine, a semi-asphaltic or 
an asphaltic residuum of petroleum which shall be 
tested with and found suitable to the asphalt to be 
used. All fluxes shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra 
chloride to the extent of ninety-nine f99^ per cent. 



The paraffine residuum shall have a specific gravity 
of ninety-two hundredths (0.92) to ninety-four hun- 
dredths (0.94) at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahren- 
heit. It shall not flash below three hundred and 
fifty (350) degrees Fahrenheit when tested in a 
New York State Closed Oil Tester, and shall not 
volatilize more than five (5) per cent of material 
when twenty (20) grams are heated five (5) 
hours at three hundred and twenty-five (325) 
degrees Fahrenheit in a tin box two and one- 
quarter (2%) inches in diameter. ' The semi- 
asphaltic residuum shall have the same general 
characteristics as paraffine residuum, except that it 
shall have a specific gravity of ninety-four hun- 
dredths (0.94) to ninety-eight hundredths (0.98) at 
seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. It shall have 
a viscosity coefficient at two hundred and twelve 
(212) degrees Fahrenheit, of less than sixteen (16), 
as determined with an Engler viscosimeter. The 
aspiialtic residuum shall have the same, general char- 
acteristics as paraffine residuum except that the spe- 
cific gravity shall be not less than ninety-eight hun- 
dredths (0.98) nor more than one and ten-hundredths 
(1.10) at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. 
The' asphaltic residuum shall be evaporated, at a 
temperature not exceeding five hundred (500) de- 
grees Fahrenheit, to a solid of fifty (50) penetration. 
It shall have a ductility at fifty (50V penetration of 
thirty (30) centimeters.

avenue, where necessary, shall be so adjusted as to 
conform to the surface of the finished pavement 
hereinbefore described. 

The sidewalks abutting on said Norwood Park 
avenue, where necessary, shall he so adjusted as to 
conform !o the curb elevations hereinbefore de- 
scribed. . ' 

Twenty-four (24) new brick catchbasins shall be 
constructed and trapped and connected with the 
sewer in Norwood Park avenue and located in the 
roadway of said Noi'wood Park avenue at necessary 
points, adjacent to the curb lines. Each of said 
catchbasins shall be seven feet two inches deep, 
measuring from the top of the brickwork, and shall 
have an internal diameter of four feet at the bottom 
and to a plane five feet above and parallel therewith. 
The walls of said catchbasins shall be eight inches 
thick and shall be built of two courses of sewer 
brick laid edgewise in perpendicular courses, upon 
a fioor of pine plank two inches in thickness. The 
top of each of said catchbasins shall decrease to two 
feet internal diameter, being drawn in by means of 
nine header courses, the diameter being decreased 
uniformly for each course. 

Each of said catchbasins shall be connected with

spaces between the sides and ends of the blocks shall 
be not less than one-eighth (%) nor more than five- 
eighths (%) of an inch. The blocks shall be so 
laid as to break joints in alternate courses, each 
course, so far as practicable, to be of uniform deptli 
and width, 'fhe blocks shall then be rammed to a 
firm and unyielding bed and to a uniform surface. 

The joints or spaces between the blocks .shall be 
filled with asphalt mastic filler. Said asphalt mastic 
filler shall be a mixture of paving cement, described 
hereafter, and hot dry sand, in the proportion of 
one (|i part sand to one (1) part paving ce- 
ment by volume. The sand shall all pas.>^ 
a ten (10) mesh sieve, and at least sixty 
(60) per cent shall pass an eighty ('80) mesh 
sieve. It shall be clean and heated to a temperature 
of not less than three hundred (300) degrees Fahren- 
heit, nor more than four hundred (^00^ degrees 
Fahrenheit, and shall be within these, limits when

shall be heated in kettles, properly equipped with 
an approved thermometer to a temperature of not 
less than three hundred (300) degrees Fahrenheit, 
nor more than three hundred fifty (350) degrees 
Fahrenheit, and shall be poured when between these 
limits. 

The mixture shall be made in a concrete carrier 
pushcart of seven (7) cubic feet capacity, or other 
approved receptacle. 

Approximately two and one-fourth (2%) cubic 
feet of the hot asphaltic cement shall be poured into 
the cart, the hot sand then added in the proportion 
indicates! above, and the mixture shall then, without 
delay, be Hushed on the surface of the blocks and 
pushed into the joints by squeegees, reflushing or 
repouring. if necessary, until the joints remain filled, 
fiush with the surface of the pavement. The cart or 
container shall be entirely emptied before refilling. 

The appliances for heating the materials for fill- 
ing the joints shall be of such efficiency and num- 
bers as will permit the pourers to follow closely the 
rammers, and all joints of rammed pavement shall 
be poured with the filler before the cessation of 
work for the day. 

The paving cement shall be asphaltic cement, as 
hereinaftei' specified, and shall comply with the fol- 
lowing requirements:

cent by volatilization when maintained at a tempera- 
ture of three hundred twenty-five (325) degrees 
Fahrenheit for five (5) hours, nor shall the pene- 
tration of the residue, after such heating, be less 
than one-half (¥2) the original penetration. 

Upon the concrete foundation herein specified, 
except that part occupied by granite block pavement 
and gra.nito headers, shall be laid a binder course 
composed of asphalt cement, gravel or clean broken 
limestone of varying sizes which will pass through 
a ring of one ( 1 ) inch internal diameter and clean 
hard-grained sand of a size that will pass through a- 
four (ii mesh sieve and be retained on a two hun- 
dred (200 1 mesh sieve. 

The gravel or stone and sand shall be heated and 
thoroughly mixed with asphalt cement in such pro- 
portion that the resulting mixture shall contain by 
weight five (5) per cent of bitumen soluble in carbon 
disulphide, twenty-five (25) per cent of sand and

the above temperature in an apparatus which shall 
effect a thorough mixture. This mixture shall be 
composed of bitumen soluble in carbon disulphide — 
11.5 per cent; material passing a 200-mesh sieve — 
12 per cent; material passing an 80-mesh sieve and 
retained on a 200-mesh sieve^25 per cent; material 
passing a iO-mesh sieve and retained on an 80-me';h 
sieVe — 38 per cent; material passing a 10-mesh sieve 
and retained on a 40-mesh sieve — 12 per cent; and 
material passing a 4-mesh sieve and retained on a 
10-mesh sieve — 1.5 per cent. 

The wearing surface when mixed as above shall 
be spread at a temperature of two hundred and 
eighty (280) degrees Fahrenheit. It shall be care- 
fully spread to an even surface and to such depth 
that after having received its ultimate compression 
it will have a thickness of two (2) inches. 

The wearing surface after being spread, and while 
still in a hot and plastic condition, shall receive 
initial compression by rolling with a self-propelled 
roller of five (5) tons weight after which natural 
hydraulic cement in the proportion of one (1) barrel 
to each one thousand (1000) square yards of surface 
shall be swept over it, and the whole then thoroughly 
compressed by rolling with a self-propelled roller of 
ten (10) tons weight, the rolling being continued for 
five (5) hours for each thousand (1000) square yards 
of surface. 

The asphalt cement above mentioned shall be pre- 
pared from the refined asphalt or asphalts and flux, 
where flux must be used, provided that mixtures of 
the refined asphalts, if used, shall be equal parts of 
each, and that the total proportion of refined asphalt 
or asphalts, comprising the asphalt cement shall not 



be less than fifty (50) per cent by weight. When 
the weight of flux in the asphalt cement prepared 
from solid, native asphalts exceeds twenty-five (25^ 
per cent thereof, asphaltic or semi-asphaltic flux 
shall be used. Tli(> I'efincd asp'halt and flux used in 
preparing the cement shall be melted together in a 
kettle at temperatures ranging from two hundred 
and fifty (250) degrees to not over three hundred 
and seventy-five (375) degrees Fahrenheit, and be 
thoroughly agitated when hot by air, steam or 
mechanica.l appliances, until the resulting cement 
has become thoroughly mixed into a homogeneous 
mass. The agitation must be continued during the 
entire period of preparing the mixtures. The cement 
shall always be of uniform consistency and if any 
portion should settle in the kettles between intervals 
of using the same it must be thoroughly agitated be- 
fore being drawn for use. The asphalt cement shall 
have a penetration at seventy-seven (77) degrees 
Fahrenheit, of from thirty (30) to one hundred (lOOi 
degrees, which shall be varied within these limits 
to adapt it to the particular asphalt used in the 
paving mixture and to the traffic a.nd other con- 
ditions of the street. When forty (40) grams of 
the asphalt cement of the consistency used in the 
paving mixture shall be heated for five (5) hours 
at a temperature of three hundred and twenty-five 
(325) degrees Fahrenheit, in a tin box two and one- 
quarter (2%1 inches in diameter, there must not be 
volatilized more than five (5) per cent of the bitumen 
nor shall the penetration at seventy-seven (77) de- 
grees Fahrenheit after such heating be less than 
one-half of the original penetration. A briquette 
of the asphalt cement of the consistency used in the 
paving mixture shall have a ductility of not less thar- 
ten (10) centimeters. 

The refined asphalt used in making the asphalt 
cement shall be obtained from crude, native solid 
asphalt. The crude native solid asphalt if requiring 
refining shall be heated to a temperature of not over 
four hundred and fifty (450) degrees Fahrenheit 
until all water and light oils have been driven off. 
At least ninety-eight and one-half (98%) per cent 
of the contained bitumen in the refined asphalt 
which is soluble in cold carbon disulphide shall be 
soluble in cold carbon tetra chloride. 

The refined asphalt may also be obtained by the 
careful distillation of California or Mexican petro- 
leum with steam agitation, at a temperature not 
exceeding seven hundred (700) degrees Fahrenheit, 
until the resulting residue has a consistency not 
softer than seventy (70) degrees penetration and not 
harder than thirty (30) degrees penetration. The 
solid residue so obtained shall be soluble in carbon 
tetra chloride to the extent of ninety-eight and one- 
half (98y2) per cent. If the solubility in carbon 
tetra chloride of the solid residue is less than ninety- 
nine (99) per cent, the bitumen shall yield upon 
ignition not more than fifteen (15) per cent of fixed 
carbon; if the solubility is ninety-nine (99) per 
cent or more, the bitumen shall yield upon ignition 
not more than eighteen (18) per cent of fixed carbon. 
When forty (40) grams of the material are heated 
for five (5) hours at a temperature of three hundred 
and twenty-five (325) degrees Fahrenheit in a tin 
box two and one-quarter (2%) inches in diameter, 
it shall lose not over five (5) per cent by weight nor 
shall the penetration after such heating be less than 
one-half of the original penetration. The refined 
asphalt shall have a ductility at fifty (50) pene- 
tration, of thirty (30) centimeters. 

The flux may be a paraffine, a semi-asphaltic or 
an asphaltic residuum of petroleum which shall be 
tested with and found suitable to the asphalt to be

avenue produced from the east and the southwester- 
ly line of Lincoln avenue and the present east curb 
line of said North Western avenue and a line parallel 
with and nine (9) feet east of th(> present east curb 
line of said North Western avenue and on the west 
side of said North Western avenue between the 
north curb line of Lawrence avenue produced froin 
the west and the southwesterly line of Lincoln ave- 
nue and the present west curb line of said North 
Western avenue and a line parallel with and nine 
[9) feet west of the jtresent west curb line of said 
North Western avenu:^ shall be spread a layer of 
Portland cement mortar or asphalt sand in such 
quantity as to insure when compacted a uniform 
depth of one (1) inch. 

If ■ Portland cement mortar is used, said mortar 
shall be composed of one (1) part cement which will 
stand the above test and comply with the above re- 
quirements and four (4) parts of torpedo sand or 
slag screenings or limestone screenings, thoroughly 
mixed dry and then spread. Said layer of mortar 
shall be sprinkled with water immediately before 
laying the creosoted wooden blocks. 

If asphalt sand is used, said asphalt sand shall be 
composed of four (4) parts by weight of 'partially 
volatile asphalt cement as hereinafter described and 
ninety-six (96) parts by weight of clean, dry sand, 
free from loam or clay. The asphalt or asphalt 
cement as used shall have a penetration of not less 
than sixty-five -(65) nor greater than seventy-five 
(75) and shall be soluble in carbon tetra chloride 
to the extent of ninety-eight and one-half (98%)

dred (lOOi and one hundred and fifteen (115) de- 
grees centigrade and in a place free from fire, added 
in small quantities at a time to the gasoline and 
benzol solvent with constant stirring of the mixture. 
Additional asphalt shall not be added until thai 
previously added is thoroughly dissolved or a homo- 
geneous mixture obtained. Eighty (80) parts by 
volume of hot asphalt shall be thus added to twenty 
(20) parts by volume of mixed solvent. 

^ The asphalt and solvent shall thgn be thoroughly 
mixed with the sand immediately before spreading. 

The asphalt sand mixture shall be spread with 
shovels and rakes to an even surface, upon which 
shall be laid the creosoted wooden block pavement. 

Upon said layer of mortar or asphalt sand shall be 
placed blocks of Southern yellow pine or other woods 
equally as good for paving purposes. Said blocks 
shall be four (4) inches in depth and three and three- 
fourths (3%) inches in width, and shall be not less 
than five (5) nor more thaii ten (10) inches in 
length, with the fiber of the wood running in the 
direction of the depth. 

Said blocks shall be made of sound timber and 
shall be square-edged, free from bark, shakes, loose 
or rotten knots, red heart, or dead timber, or defects 
which will interfere with the proper laying of same. 
No second growth timber shall be used and all blocks 
must be of the same kind of wood. 

Said blocks shall be placed in an air-tight cham- 
ber, where, by means of steam and a vacuum pump, 
the sap in the blocks shall be vaporized and the 



moisture in them removed. When the blocks are 
thoroughly dry, the wood preserving oil hereinafter 
described shall be admitted into the chamber and 
subjected to a pressure which shall be maintained 
until sixteen (16) pounds of the oil shall Iiave been 
forced into each cubic foot of timber.

tained wholly from coal tar, and shall have a specific 
gravity at twenty-five (25) degrees centigrade of not 
less than one and ten one-hundredths (1.10) nor 
moi'e than one and thirteen one-hundredths (1.13). 
It shall contain not more than one (1) per cent of 
matter insoluble in hot benzol and .chloroform. 

When one-hundred (100) grams of the oil are 
placed in a stoppered glass retort having a capacity 
of eight (8) ounces up to the bend of the neck of 
the. retort, with a thermometer placed in the retort 
so that the bulb thereof shall be one-half (%) inch 
above the oil in the retort at the commencement of 
the distillation and then subjected to a distilling test 
until heated to a temperature of three hundred and 
fifteen (315) degrees centigrade, not more than forty 
(40) per cent by weight of said oil shall distill off. 

The distillation of the oil shall be carried to three 
hundred and fifty-five (355) degrees centigrade, and 
the residue thus obtained, « when cooled to fifteen 
(15) degrees centigrade, shall not be brittle, but shall 
be of a soft waxlike nature. When a small portion 
of this residue is placed on white filter paper and 
warmed, the oil spot produced, viewed by transmit- 
ted sunlight, shall be of an amber color. 

The blocks shall be laid in parallel courses across 
the said roadways at right angles with the center 
line thereof and when laid the bottom of said blocks 
shall be four (4) inches below the finished pave- 
ment. The courses shall break joints alternately, 
and the blocks s^hall be driven together. Spaces 
for expansion one and one-half (1%) inches in width 
shall be left adjoining the roadway face of said curb- 
ing. 

The blocks when set shall be rolled with a roller 
of five (5) tons weight until the blocks are well 
settled and made firm. When the blocks are firmly 
bedded in said layer of Portland cement mortar or 
asphalt sand the surface of the pavement must be 
true to the form of roadway hereinbefore described. 

After rolling, the surface of the pavement shall be 
swept clean and the joints or spaces between the 
blocks shall be filled with a paving pitch which is 
the direct result of the distillation of "straight run" 
coal tar which shall be applied at a temperature of 
not less than three hundrpd (300) degrees Fahren- 
heit. The expansion joints specified above shall be 
filled with said paving pitch or other material equal 
thereto for expansion joint purposes. The surface 
of the pavement shall then receive a one-fourth (%) 
inch dressing of hot, clean torpedo sand.

(;o,st of Living. 

Alderman Adamowski jtresented the following memo- 
randum, which was ordered jiublished and placed on 
tile: 

GHicA(io, April 25, 1921. 
To lite Chairman and Members of the 
Committee on High Cost of Living, Chicago: 
dENTi.iJiViKN — Pursuant to your request I herewith 
submit the fcMlowing synopsis of the work of the 
Cdmnutlei" and the results obtained from the date 
(if its appointment July 1.. 1920 to date: 

Sugar. 

In May and Jvui(> sugar was selling up to 31c pel- 
pound and "householders could ^t'{ it only by a pound 
at a time, and it was currently pirdicled it would go 
lo 50c pel' jjoiuid. 

The first work of this ofltice was to investigate the 
sugar situation and obtain correct information in 
relation to the sugar in stock and the sugar in pros- 
peel from the new crop, which disclosed a surplus 
instead of a shortage. The facts were published and 
sugar dropped immediately and before December 18th 
had declined from 22 cents to 2'i cents wholesale to 
7% cents in car lots, and retail prices declined ac- 
cordiingly.i — saving to consumers of Chicago mil- 
lions of dollars. 

Hotels and Restaurants. 
This subject was taken up and through confer- 
ences, publicity and carry-your-lunch drives the 
general level of prices have been reduced on an av- 
erage of from 20 to 30 per cent, and portions in- 
creased as shown by the following schedule of reduc- 
tions taken from prominent hotels and restaurants:

Stimuludoii ol' liilciTst and Activity in tlic Ucsidcntial 
Districts for the Fagcaiit of Progress i:xr)osition. 

The Mayor suhmillcd I lie following- comimmicaUon, 
which was ordered published and placed on Tde: 

Pageant op Progress Exposition,) 
Chicago, May -ith, 1921.( 

To the Hon. Wm. Hale Thompson, Mayor of City of 
Chicago. 

Dear Mk. Mayor — The organization of the manu- 
facturing and business interests in the outlying dis- 
tricts for participation in the Pageant of Progress 
Exposition is well under way and responsibility for 
various divisions is rapidly being apportioned to 
leaders in these districts. 

It will be necessary, however, to create and stimu- 
late interest and activity in the residential districts 
and among the citizens and professional men who will 
not be reached by the business and manufacturing 
groups. 

In view of the above, may I suggest that through 
your own good offices, an urgent invitation be given 
to all Aldermen to create and stimulate interest for 
the Pageant among their residents and constituents in 
their various wards. 

I believe with you that the event will be the 
greatest of its kind for the Chicago District, and feel 
that everyone without exception should participate,

Corporate Purposes. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion: 

Fifty-Second General Assemsly,1 

House op Representatives, I 

Springfield, Illinois, May 5, 1921. J 

Hon. James T. Igoe, City Clerk, City of Chicago, Chi- 
cago, Illinois. 

Dear Sir — The Revenue Committee of the House of 
Representatives of the Fifty-second General Assem- 
bly of the State of Illinois requests the city officers 
and members of thf city council of the city of Chica- 
go to appear before it at its meeting to be held on the 
tenth day of May, 1921, in the Capitol Building, in the 
city of Springfield, State of Illinois, and furnish to the 
Committee an estimate of moneys necessary to de- 
fray the expenses of the city of Chicago for the 
current fiscal year, and to report to the Committee 
what legislation may be deemed necessary in order 
that the proper amount of revenue for the city may be 
raised. 

Attention is called to the duties of the city coun- 
cil of the city of Chicago under Section 1 of Article 
V and Section 2 of Article VII of "An Act to provide 
for the incorporation of cities and villages", ap- 
proved April 10. 1872. in force July 1, 1872, as 
amended, and to the duties of the city comptroller 
under the provisions of Section 17 of Article VII of 
said Act. 

A bill (House Bill No. ii.5l. has been introduced 
and referred to this Committee! which proposes to 
raise the maximum tax rate which may be levied by 
the city council of any city having 150,000 or more 
inhabitants, from 1.43 1/3 per cent to 2.1.5 per cent 
until 1923, and from .80 per cent thereafter. It is 
the desire of this Committee that it may have proof 
that such a raise in the tax rate is necessary before 
it gives its approval to this bill. Therefore, point 
out the duty of the city council to instruct its Finance 
Committee to appear and sponsor said bill, or by 
its act officially place some one as sponsor. Until 



such time as this is done, House Bill No. 415 re- 
mains in Committee. 

Yours very truly, 

(Signed) c. A. Young, 

Chairman, Revenue Committee. 

Alderman Olsen moved that the Chair be authorized 
and directed to appoint a committee of live Aldermen, 
including the chairman of the Committee on Finance, 
to go to Springfield and represent the City Council be- 
fore the appropriate committees of the General As- 
sembly in reference to the subject-matter of the fore- 
going communication. 

Aldermen Steffen, McDonough. Eaton. Maypole, Link, 
Smith, Wallace, Guernsey, T. A. Hogan and Brieske 
thereupon presented an ordinance providing for a ref- 
erendum vote at the election to be held on Monday, 
June 6, 1921, on the following proposition: "Shall the 
legislature raise the tax rate of the City of Chicago for 
current corporate purposes?" 

Alderman Steffen moved to substitute said ordinance 
for the motion under consideration. 

A question having arisen as to the power of the City 
Council to submit said proposition to a referendum 
vote, and a debate having ensued thereon. Alderman 
L. B. Anderson was ruled out of order on a point of or- 
der raised by Alderman Wallace to the effect that un- 
der the rules of the Council an Alderman can speak 
only once upon any question under debate until after 
all the Aldermen who desire fo be heard on the ques- 
tion have spoken. 

On a further point of order raised by Alderman Ol- 
sen. the Chair ruled that said ordinance was new busi- 
ness, and under the rules of the Council should be re- 
ferred to a committee unless unanimous consent were 
given for its consideration. 

Unanimous consent being refused for consideration 
of said ordinance. Alderman Steffen moved to suspend 
the rules temporarily to permit such consideration.

and nays as follows:

of the store and started screaming, attracting the at- 
tention of Patrolman John A. Lachel of the 24th 
Precinct. Lachel chased Schroeder. ordering him to 
halt several times and firing in the air in an endeavor 
to stop him. Schroeder turned half way around and 
raised his hand, giving the impression that he was 
armed. Lachel then fired directly at him, striking 
him in the neck, from the effect of which wound he 
died two hours afterwards. Schroeder has had a

the County School. Parental School and twice at the

The following is said resolution as adopted: 

Whereas. There are now pending before the Gen- 
eral Assembly a number of bills which, if enacted 
into law, would operate to increase the expenses of 
the City payable out of the general corporate fund 
and would charge the general corporate fund with 
items that are not now a lien on the same, and also 
measures which will deprive the corporate fund of 
certain revenue it now receives from fees for record- 
ing and acknowledging chattel mortgages; and 

Whereas. The resources of the City available for 
general corporate purposes are at the present time 
inadequate, and the activities of the various depart- 
ments of the City government would be seriously 
impaired if further reduction of same were to re- 
sult; therefore, he it 

Besolved, That the City Council of the City of 
Chicago recommend to the General Assembly that 
a policy be adopted which will prevent the- further 
encumbrance or depletion of the general corporate 
fund or City Treasury of the City of Chicago by 
activities created or transferred in such a way that 
the expense thereof will fall on such general cor- 
porate fund, and that this body protests against any 
action on the part of the General Assembly which 
will have that effect, be it further 

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be for- 
warded to the Governor, the Senate and the House 
of Representatives forthwith by the City Clerk.

Company and operated by the Chicago Surface 
Lines at and near • the Municipal Pier in the 
City of Chicago, in the County of Cook and State 
of Illinois, and the Commission fmds: 

1. That the Municipal Pier mentioned in the 
petition herein is a structure owned by the City 
of Chicago, a municipal corporation located in said 
County of Cook and existing under the laws of 
said State of Illinois; and that said City of Chi- 
cago has invested in said Municipal Pier approxi- 
mately $5,000,000.00. 

2. That said Pier is located on the shore of 
Lake Michigan, in the north division of said City 
of Chicago, and extends into Lake Michigan a 
distance of about 3,000 feet; that said Pier con- 
sists of two sections, viz. : the recreation section, 
which is at the eastern end of said Pier, and the 
commercial section, which lies between and ex- 
tends from the western end of said Pier to said 
recreation section of said Pier and is about 2,340 
feet in length; that said commercial section is 
divided into two parts, one on the north side and 
the other on the south side of the court herein- 
after mentioned; that these two parts are sep- 
arated from each other by a court approximately 
80 feet in width; and that said commercial section 
on each side of said court is also divided into an 
upper part and a lower part. 

3. That, as originally ' designed, each of said 
lower parts of said commercial section was in- 
tended to be used in connection with freight traffic; 
and that each of said upper parts was intended to 
be used in connection with passenger traffic on 
Lake Michigan. 

4. That, during the period of more than five 
years last past, said Pier has been open for opera- 
tion; that, during all said time, said commercial 
section has not been used, except to a compara- 
tively insignificant extent, for the purposes for 
which it was originally intended or, indeed, for 
any purpose profitable to the City of Chicago; and 
that it appears, from the evidence, that unless 
the use thereof is promoted and stimulated by the 
exposition known as the Pageant of Progress, here- 
inafter mentioned, or in some similar way, said 
commercial section of said Pier will continue to 
be mainly unoccupied and unused for any profit- 
able or productive purpose; and that, in conse- 
quence, the said City of Chicago will, in the fu- 
ture as in the past, derive no substantial revenue 
from said commercial section. 

5. That the said Pageant of Progress is a cor- 
poration not for pecuniary profit under the laws 
of said State of Illinois; thai it has made arrange- 
ments with said City of Chicago for the use of 
the upper parts of said commercial section for a 
term of over five years, and probably will also 
need and be able to use a large portion of the lower 
parts of said commercial section which is not now 
being profitably used : that said Pageant of Pro- 
gress, a corporation, has made extensive prepara- 
tions for and intends to hold, during the summer 
of 1921, a great exposition to be called "The 
Pageant of Progress" upon said Pier; that at first 
it was contemplated that only one of the upper 
parts of said commercial section would be needed 
for said Exposition; but both of said upper parts 
are now taken for that purposej and it seems 
probable, from the evidence, that a very consid- 
erable portion of the lower parts of said com- 
mercial section will be needed for the purposes of 
said Exposition. 

6. That the purpose of said Exposition is to 



build up and stimulate the trade and commerce 
of the City of Chicago and will be for the benefit 
of the People of said City and is being promoted 
and supported by substantially all of the business 
interests of said City; that the said exposition is 
designed and intended and in all probability will 
become a permanent institution on the commercial 
section of said Pier; that thereby the said com- 
mercial section of said Pier will be used for the 
purpose of promoting and aiding the trade and 
commerce of the said City of Chicago, and instead 
of being a loss to said City of Chicago, will be- 
come profitable to said City and its people; and 
that, incidentally, many additional people will be 
led to visit the recreation section of said Pier, 
and, in consequence, the City of Chicago will be 
greatly benefited, financially, through the result- 
ing increased value of concessions thereon, and 
the increased revenue derived therefrom. 

7. That the respondent, Chicago Railways Com- 
pany, ov»ns a street railway system located in part 
in the north division of the City of Chicago; that 
said street railway system furnishes the only 
means of transportation by means of a street rail- 
way from other parts of said City to said Muni- 
cipal Pier; that as part of its said system said 
Chicago Railways Company owns a street railway 
line located on Grand avenue in the said City of 
Chicago, which is extended from said Grand ave- 
nue up an incline into and around tne upper court 
of said Pier, and also a line of street railway lo- 
cated in Chicago avenue a short distance north of 
said Grand avenue, and that said street railway 
system is operated by said Chicago Railways Com- 
pany and certain other corporations under the 
name of the Chicago Surface Lines; that being 
such sole means of transportation by street rail- 
way from other parts of said City to and from said 
Pier, said respondents will be materially benefited 
by the increased use of all portions of said Pier 
by the public. 

8. That the streret railway line so located with- 
in the court of said Pier is approximately eighteen 
(18) feet above the surface thereof, and is on the 
level of said upper parts of said commercial sec- 
tion; that the structures upon which said elevated 
tracks and approaches are constructed and oper- 
ated are the property of the City of Chicago; that, 
as now located, said street railway line cannot be 
operated without seriously interfering with, if 
not absolutely preventing, the holding of said Ex- 
position know'n as the Pageant of Progress; and 
that, if said street railway line continues to be 
operated as now located, it will prevent the said 
upper parts of said commercial section from being 
put to profitable use by said City of Chicago. 

9. That the space between the elevated tracks 
of respondents and the walls of said upper courf . 
of said Pier are entirely inadequate and danger- 
ous to the public now using the recreation portion 

'Of said Pier who wish to alight from, wait for or 
board the cars of respondents; that upon the ad- 
ditional permanent development of the use of the 
commercial section of said Pier by the public as 
contemplated and particularly while said Exposi- 
tion is being held said space is entirely inadequate 
and dangerous for the use of the public a» waiting 
platforms for persons wishing to board respon- 
dents' cars; that the large additional space in the 
upper commercial section reasonably necessary 
for safe waiting, loading and unloading stations 
for passengers on respondents' railway visiting 
said Pier is not available nor is such use of large 
additional space for terminal facilities reasonably

its present Incation in the ui)per coui't on said 
Pier. 

10. Tliat the proper i)lace for said street rail- 
way line to he located is in the center of the court 
of said Pier, on the level thereof, witli a terminal 
near the east end of said court and connecting at 
the west end with said street railway on Grand 
avenue on the level of said street, and that the 
cars upon said street railway should be operated 
at the said east end of said street railway line in 
said court by means of a switchback or switch- 
backs, and not by means of a loop. 

11. That the Commission has not fully de- 
termined the details with respect to the relocation 
and operation of said street railway line, but 
considers that such details should, in the first in- 
stance, be \yorked out by representatives of said 
Ghicag'o Railways Company or Chicago Surface 
Lines or both of them and that the plan so worked 
out, s'hould be submitted to the Commission for 
its approval or disapproval or modification. 

12. That said Exposition will commence on 
July .30'. 1921, and it is necessary that said street 
railway line should be removed from its present 
location and relocated in said court, as herein pro- 
vided, a reasonable time before the commence- 
ment of said Exposition; that, all things consid- 
ered, said street railway line should be re- 
moved from its present location and be relocated 
in the court Of said Pier and be ready for opera- 
tion as so relocated not later than June 15, 1921; 
and that the plans for such relocation should be 
perfected and the work of relocating said street 

; railway line in said court should be begun a sulTi- 
cient time prior to said June 15, 1921, to insure 
that said street railway line will be removed from 
its present location and relocated in the court of 
said Pier as herein provided and be ready for 

. operation as so relocat'^d not later than said June 
15, 1921; and the Commission finds, that for that 
purpose, said plans should be completed and the 
work of relocating said line in said court should 
be begun not later tlian May 15, 1921. 

t.3. Therefore, It Is Ohdeued, by the, Commis- 
sion that the respondents, the Chicago Railways 
Company and Chicago Surface Lines remove said 
street railway line from the place where the same 
is now located in said Pier, and also from the ap- 
pj'oach thereto from Grand avenue, on or before 
June 15, 1921; that they proceed at once to pre- 
pare detailed plans relocating said street railway 
line as a double track on the surface and within 
the center of said court with such switchback or 
switchbacks, as may be required, for the purpose 
of operation at the east end of said street railway 
line: and that they submit to the Commission within 
five days from the date of the entry of this order 
detailed plans for such relocation of said street 
railway line for approval or disapproval or modi- 
fication by the Commission. In the meantime, 
the engineer of the Commission is ordered to make 
studies of the situation with a view to advising 
the Commission with respect to the details of such 
relocation. 

14. TJiat the representatives of said City of 



Chicago and also the representatives of said 
Pagi'ant of Pi'ogi'ess are given leavf; to submit to 
the Connnission, within said five days from the 
date of the enti'y of this order, any plans or sug- 
gestions they may desir*^ to submit with respect 
lo the details of su(di relocation. 

15. The Commission further orders that the 
petitioner proceed at onc(! and with all convenient 
speed to procure from said City of Chicago any 
consent or consents of said City necessary to the 
consummation of such relocation of said street rail- 
way line; this order for the removal of the said 
street railway line from its present location and 
the- relocation of the same, as herein indicated, 
being conditional upon tlu^ consent of the said 
City of Chicago to such relocation of said line 
being had and obtained. 

16. The Commission further orders that such 
street railway line be removed and relocated at the 
expense, in the first instance, of said Chicago 
Railways Company; but the Commission reserves 
foFifuture determination the question whether any 
part of such expense should be borne by the said 
Pageant of Progress or by the said City of Chicago 
in case said Chicago Railways Company should 
apply to the Commission to have such expense ap- 
portioned. 

17. The Commission further finds, that in 
order to enable the said Chicago Railways Com- 
pany and said Chicago Surface Lines adequately 
and safely to transport the people to and from said 
Pier, especially while said Exposition is being 
held, it is convenient and necessary that they 
should be allowed to construct, maintain and oper- 
ate certain extensions and loops, either tem- 
porarily or permanently, near the west end of said 
Pier, one connected with tlieir Grand avenue line 
and located south of said Grand avenue and the 
other connected with their Chicago avenue line 
and located to the south of said Chicago avenue, 
but north of said Grand avenue. 

18. The Commission has not decided as to the 
exact location of these extensions and loops or 
either of them, but considers that the said Chicago 
Railways Company and Chicago Surface Lines 
should, in the first instance, prepare and submit 
to the Commission detailed plans as to the location 
of said proposed extension and loops and each of 
them for the approval, disai)proval or modification 
thereof by the Commission. 

19. Therefore, it is ordered by the Commission 
that the respondents, the Chicago Railways Com- 
pany and the Chicago Surface Lines, within ten 
days from the date of the entry of this order, 
prepare and sutomit to the Commission detailed 
plans with respect to the location of said exten- 
sions and loops and each of them: that the repre- 
sentatives of said City of Chicago and of said 
Pageant of Progress are given permission to sub- 
mit any |)lans or suggestions they may desire to 
the Conmiission within said ten days: and that the 
engineer of the Commission in the meantime also 
make a study and prepare for submission to the 
Commission plans and suggestions as to the lo- 
cation of said extensions and loops and each of 
them. 

20. The Commission further orders that the 
petitioner ascertain and, within said ten days 
from the entry of this order, report to the Com- 
mission whether or not the necessary consents 
can be had from the proper authorities for th" 
location of said extensions and loops and each of 
them; if being understood that the order of the

Commission for the location of said extensions and 
loops is conditional upon such consents being had 
and obtained. 

21. While, for the purpose of facilitating the 
several things necessary to be done to accomplish 
the purposes of this order, that portion of the 
order of the Commission with respect to the re- 
moval of the street railway line from its present 
location within said Pier and upon the approach 
thereto, and the relocation thereof in the center 
of the court of said Pier, is separate and distinct 
from and independent of the part of this order 
relating to the location of said extensions and 
loops near the west end of said Pier, yet the Com- 
mission believes that, for the safe and convenient 
handling of the public in the future, with the in- 
creased number of visitors at said Pier, due to 
the development of the use of the commercial 
portion of said Pier as well as the recreation por- 
tion, and especially during said Pageant of Pro- 
gress and the large number of persons who may 
be reasonably presumed will attend the same, both 
the construction of the double track and switch- 
backs on the ground floor of said commercial 
section and the construction and operation of 
loops, as described and ordered herein, are, each, 
and every one, necessary for the public interest 
and for the public safety. 

By order of the Commission at Springfield, Illi- 
nois, this 3rd day of May, 1921. 

(Signed) Julius Johnson,

surface of the pavement adjoining said curbing and 
the surface of the pavement at. the center of said 
finished roadways. The surface of said pavement 
thence shall slope gradually to meet the gutters here- 
inbefore specified. 

Upon the roadbeds thus prepared between said 
points shall be spread a layer of Portland cement 
concrete six (6) inches in thickness. Said cement 
shall be so ground that ninety-two (92) per cent, 
will pass through a standard number one hundred 
(100^ sieve having ten thousand (10,000) meshes per 
square inch. 

Briquettes made from a mortar composed of one 
(1) part said Portland cement and three (3) parts 
torpedo sand, or three (3) parts of limestone screen- 
ings, free from dirt, dust and other impurities, ex- 
posed to the air for one (1) day and immersed in 
water for six (6) days, shall develop an ultimate ten- 
sile strength of two hundred (200) pounds per square 
inch.

through a ring of two (2) inches internal diameter 
and be held on a ring of one-half (Va) inch internal 
diameter, all of which slag ot stone shall be thorough- 
ly cleaned, free from all foreign substances and 
drenched with water, shall then be incorporated im- 
mediately with the mortar. 

Each batch of concrete shall be thoroughly mixed 
and at once spread upon the surface of said road- 
beds and thoroughly compacted by ramming until free 
mortar appears on the surface. 

Upon the concrete foundation herein specified 
granite headers shall be set on edge with their length 
parallel to the street railway in such a manner so as 
to leave a space one and twenty-three one-hundredths 
(1,23) feet in width on each side of and adjoining said 
street railway. Said headers shall be of the best 
quality of uniform texture, without lamination or 
stratification, and free from an excess of mica or

coincide with the surface of the finished pavement 
herein described. 

Upon the concrete foundation herein specified on 
that part of said roadway one and twenty-three one- 
hundredths (1.23^ feet in width on each side of and 
adjoining the street railway shall be spread ^ layer 
of torpedo sand, limestone screening's or slag screen- 
ings in such quantity as to insure when compacted 
a uniform depth of one and one-half (1%) inches 
upon which shall be laid the granite blocks. 

The pavement shall consist of granite blocks of 
the best quality of uniform texture without lamina- 
tion or stratification and free from an excess of mica 
or feldspar. The dimensions of said blocks shall be 
four (4) inches in width and four (4) inches in 
depth and six (6^ to ten (10) inches in length. The 
blocks shall be laid on edge with their length paral- 
lel with said street railway, and the spaces between 
the sides and ends of the blocks shall be not less than 
one-eighth (%) of an inch nor more than five- 
eighths (%) of an inch. The blocks shall be so laid 
as to break joints in alternate courses, each course, 
so far as practicable, to be of uniform depth and 
width. The blocks shall then be rammed to a firm 
and unyielding bed and to a uniform surface. 

The joints or spaces between the blocks shall be 
filled with a Portland cement grout filler composed 
of equal parts of the best quality of Portland cement 
and clean, sharp sand, thoroughly mixed and suffi- 
cient water added to bring the mixture to such a 
consistency as will allow it to run to the bottom of 
the joints between the blocks. After said joints are 
filled to the top, the surface shall be finished off 
smoothly with fibre brooms. 

Upon the concrete foundation herein specified ex- 
cept that part occupied by granite pavement and 
granite headers shall be spread a layer of torpedo 
sand, limestone screenings or slag screenings in such 
quantity as to insure when compacted a uniform 
depth of one (1) inch, upon which shall be laid the 
brick pavement. 

The brick shall be vitrified paving brick, and shall 
be thoroughly annealed, Lough and durable, regular 
fn size, and shall be evenly burned. When broken

depth. The dimensions -of the brick shall be the 
same throughout the entire work, and shall be four 
(4) inches in depth, not less then eight (8) inches 
in length and three (3) inches in thickness. 

Twenty (20) or more specimen brick shall be fur- 
nished by each bidder for submission to the "abras- 
ion" test by the Board of Local Improvements. Such 
test shall be made in a machine known as a "Rattler" 
which shall consist of heads, liners and staves. The 
heads shall be not less than three-fourths {%) 
inch thick nor more than seven-eighths (%) 
inch thick, and shall be cast with trunnions in one 
(1) piece. In outline t'hey shall be a regular polygon 
of fourteen (l'i) sides inscribed in a circle twenty- 
eight and three eighths (28%) inches in diameter. 
The heads shall be provided with flanges extending 
outward from the inside face thereof to afford a 
means of fastening the staves. There shall be for each 
•head a liner or wear plate one (1) inch in thickness 
and conforming to the outline of the head, but in- 
scribed in a circle twenty-eight and one-eighth (28%) 
inches in diameter. These liners shall be made of 
hard machinery cast iron, which must contain not 
less than one (1) per cent of combined carbon, and 



shall be securely fastened to the heads by cap 
screws. 

The staves shall be made of six (6) inch medium 
steel structural channels twenty-seven and one- 
fourth (27%) inches long and weighing fifteen and 
five-tenths (15.5) pounds per lineal foot. The flat 
side of each channel shall be protected by a liner or 
wear plate made of medium steel three-eighths (%) 
inch thick, by five and one-half (5%) inches 
wide, and nineteen and three-fourths (19%) inches 
long. 

The stave liner sliall be securely fastened to the 
channel with rivets, which shall be chipped off flush 
with the surface of the liner. The liners of the 
staves must be so placed as to drop between the lin- 
ers of the heads. The staves shall be bolted to the 
heads and shall form a barrel twenty (20) inches 
long, inside measurement between liners. The bar- 
rel shall be mounted on a cast iron frame securely 
fastened to a rigid foundation, and shall be driven 
by suitable gearing. 

The charge shall be composed of said brick and 
iron abrasive material. The brick charge shall con- 
sist of ten (10) whole bricks and the abrasive 
charge shall consist of three hundred (300) pounds 
of shot made from iron having a chemical composi- 
tion within the following limits: combined carbon, 
not less than two and fifty one-hundredths (2.50) per 
cent; graphitic carbon, not more than ten one-hun- 
dredths (.10) per cent; silicon, not more than one (1) 
per cent; manganese, not more than fifty one-hun- 
dredths (.50) per cent; phosphorus, not more than 
twenty-five one-hundredths (.25) per cent; sulphur, 
. not more than eight one-hundredths (.08) per cent. 
Said shot shall consist of spheres having a diametei' 
of one and seven-eighths (lYs) inches aggregating two 
hundred and twenty-five (225) pounds in weight, and 
spheres three and three-fourths (3%) inches in di- 
ameter, aggregating seventy-five (75) pounds in 
weight. 

The rattler, after being thus charged, shall be re- 
volved eighteen hundred i 1.800) times, and the speed 
of rotation shall not fall below twenty-nine and one- 
half (29%) nor exceed thirty and one-half (30'/-) 
per minute. The average loss of weight by abrasion 
during two (2) tests shall not exceed twenty (20) 
per cent of the original weight of the brick tested. 
The tests shall be made on charges containing but one 
make of brick at a time. Said brick shall be thor- 
oughly dry when tested. 

All brick used must be equal in every respect to 
the brick submitted for test. 

The brick shall be laid as follows, to wit: Broken 
brick can only be used to break joints in starting 
courses and in making closures, but in no case shall 
less than three-eighths (%) of a brick be used. The 
brick shall be set lengthwise on edge, with the sides 
and ends close together, across said roadbeds parallel 
to vertical planes which shall be at right angles to 
the curb lines of said roadways. 

On roadway intersections the brick shall be set 
lengthwise on edge with the sides and ends close to- 
sether and parallel to vertical planes which shall be 
at an angle of forty-five (45) degrees with the cen- 
ter line of the street. 

The joints shall be broken by a lap of not less 
than three (3) inches. The brick w-hen set shall be 
rolled with a roller of five (5) tons weight until the 
brick is well settled and made firm. When the brick 
is thoroughly bedded, the surface of the pavement 
must be true to the form of roadway hereinbefore

Chicago, May 10, 1921. 

Mr. Anton, J. Cermak, Chairman, and Members of the 
Committee on Railroads, Industries and Compensa- 
tion, City Hall, Chicago: 

Gentlemen — Iii re the following communication: 
"At a meeting of the Committee on Railroads, In- 
dustriefe and Compensation held this date, I was 
directed to request the Chicago Railway Terminal 
Commission to make report to the Committee on 
Railroads. Industries and Compensation — prefer- 
ably at the meeting to be held Tuesday, May 10, 
1921, at 2:30 o'clock P. M.— on the status of the 
Chicago Union Station, the new Illinois Central 
Railroad Terminal, and the river-straightening 
program; also on the proposed Sanata Fe Railway 
ordinances." 

On May 4th an examiner for the Interstate Com- 
merce Commission re-convened the hearing in the 
matter of the application of the New York Central 
Railroad for the purpose of thd Chicago Junction 
Railroad and the Chicago River & Indiana Railroad. 
Both of these railroads being properties used ex- 
clusively for the handling of terminal business in the 
Chicago Terminal District. 

The Chicago Railway Terminal Commission in re- 
ports previously made to the City Council has pointed 
out the objections to the application of the com- 
petitive theory to the operation of railway terminals 
and the desirability from the viewpoint of the City, 
the public, and the railroads, of the co-operative use 
of railway terminals. 

The acquisition by the New York Central Railroad 
of the Chicago Junction Railroad and the Chicago 
River & Indiana Railroad for the purpose of far- 
thering the application of the competitive principle 
in the operation of railway terminals, would in the 
opinion of the Commission, be contrary to the best 
interests of the community as a whole, and would 
be an added obstacle to the ultimate solution of the 
railway terminal problem at Chicago. 

When the hearings on this matter were first open- 
ed several weeks ago, the Railway Terminal Com- 



mission ap|)('ar(!d Ix'A'ovc. the examiner and were 
intoi'HHid that his instructions ()rev(Mited him from 
allowing any t(!stimoiiy to b(! introduced bearing on 
the effect the acquisition of these propcM'ties would 
have on the terminal situation as a whole. It was 
therelorc necessary Cor the Commission to send a 
I'cpi'csentative to Washington to set before the In- 
Icr'siate Commerce Commission the viewpoint of the 
Railway Terminal Commission, and argue for a 
modification of the order covering these hearings. 

When the hearings were re-convened on May iih 
the examiner announced that his instructions had 
be(!n modified and that any testimony with reference 
to the effect that the acquisition of these properties 
by a main line carrier, would be admitted as per- 
tinent to the matters at issue. 

It therefore becomes necessary for the Railway 
Terminal Commission to be represented by counsel 
at all of these hearings, and the following of these 
hearings and the outlining and preparation of data 
and testimony that will protect the Commission, 
will require practically the entire time of the active 
members of the Commission. 

It is believed that there has never been a time 
since the creation of the Commission when the op- 
portunities for accomplishment were greater than 
at the present time, due to the possibilities brought 
about through this hearing now in progress, and it 
is believed that out of these hearings it will be pos- 
sible to secure agreements that will very materially 
advance the solution of the railway terminal prob- 
lem at Chicago. 

In view of the foregoing it has been impossible 
for the Commission to give any extended considera- 
tion to the matter contained in your communication 
quoted at the beginning of this letter. However, since 
the office of the Commission keeps in general touch 
with these matters we are able to submit the fol- 
lowing information: 

Union Station Project. 

On account of the tie-up in the building trades 
there is no construction Avork of any magnitude 
going on at the present time in the main station 
project. 

Some of the portions of the work on which pre- 
liminary progress has been made and which will 
be forwarded as soon as work is resumed are the 
following : 

Hailway Mail Building. 

Contract has been let for this building and the 
fabrication of the steel work is in progress. 

\an Bnren Street Viaduct. 

Contract has been let and steel is being fabri- 
cated. 

Canal Street — Van Buren Street to Jackson Boulevard. 

Contract has been let and steel is being fabri- 
cated. 

Madison Street Viaduct. 

Contract has been let and steel is being fabri- 
cated. 

Butler Building. 

The new Butler Building has been completed 
and the old building is being wrecked. 

Temporary Cab Stand. 

A temporary cab stand has been constructed in 



May is, 1&21.

the west half of the block between Adams street 
and Monroe street and a tunnel constructed lead- 
ing from this cab stand under the east half of the 
block and under Canal street to connect with the 
station concourse. 

In the immediate future the Commission will sub- 
mit a statement covering the entire Union Station 
project, the status of all of the work in connection 
therewith, and other information so that your Com- 
mittee may be in possession of all of the facts with 
i-eference to this project. 

Illinois Central Lake Front Terminal. 

The pedestrian subway under Michigan boule- 
vard at Randolph street has been completed. In- 
vestigations have been made to determine the type 
of equipment to be used in suburban service, de- 
signs and specifications prepared, and new equip- 
ment ordered. Dedication of lands were made and 
steps taken to secure by condemnation land not 
owned by the Company required to complete the 
widening of East Roosevelt road and Indiana 
avenue. 

A commission of expert electrical engineers has 
been formed to make a study of the electrical re- 
quirements contained in the ordinance, and to re- 
port on the system of electrification best suited to 
the operating conditions of the several classes of 
service. The work of this commission is in pro- 
gress, regular meetings are being held, and a re- 
port is expected in October. 

Surveying parties are engaged in the making of 
surveys, preliminary to making of plans for track 
and station lay out. subways and viaduct construc- 
tion. A staff of about fifty architects, en- 
gineers, designers, draftsmen and computers are 
at work preparing detailed plans of various 
phases of the construction. 

:The South Park Commissioners have taken 
steps for the widening of South Park avenue as 
an extension of Grand boulevard. Plans are being 
prepared for the viaduct to carry this extension 
over the Illinois Central tracks at 23rd street and 
contracts have been let for the construction of 
break waters so that the area between 23rd street 
and i6th street can be filled, and as a first step, 
a driveway constructed thereon. It- is our under- 
standing that this particular work is being pushed 
rapidly and its completion will be a great relief 
' to' the traffic congestion on Michigan avenue. 

River Straightening. 

A complete statement with reference to the river 
straightening program was contained in the report 
recently submitted by Mr. Wallace. 

An Act which would give the City the right to 
straighten the river has been prepared and in- 
troduced in the Legislature. Out of the hearings 
. which are now in progress before the Interstate 
Commerce Commission it is to be hoped that the 
situation will develop that will materially assist 
in the furthering of this project. 

It would be of material assistance to the Com- 
mission if the report recently submitted by Mr. 
Wallace could be published so that it would be 
available for general distribution. 

Santa Fe Rail-way Ordinance. 

The Commission has not had the opportunity 
since it has been re-organized and since this ordi- 
nance has been referred to it to give any thorough 
consideration to the provision of these ordinances. 



The main problem involved as to whether or not 
the passage of these ordinances as drawn would in 
any way be an added burden to the ultimate so- 
lution of the railroad problem, would be a mat- 
ter which the Commission would need to give 
thorough consideration. 

The developments in connection with the hear- 
ings now in progress before the Interstate Com- 
merce Commission may have an important bear- 
ing on the questions involved and the Commission 
is therefore asking for further time in which to 
report on these ordinances. In the meantime a 
study of the ordinances will be made and if it is 
possible to make any recommendations that would 
relieve local conditions the Commission will do so, 
as soon as possible. 

Another recent development which may have a 
direct bearing on the solution of the terminal prob- 
lem in Chicago is the passage by the United States 
Senate of the resolution introduced by Senator Cum- 
mins, Chairman of the Senate Committee on Inter- 
state Commerce. This resolution provides for a 
broad investigation of the entire transportation situ- 
ation in the country and we are informed that it 
is the purpose to take up in this investigation the 
question of the unification of railway terminals, and 
to go particularly info the situation at Chicago.
